1. We got a shiny new microwave on Sunday.

2. I got the crown put on my tooth today. Talk about hyper-sensitive to cold, it hurt when he was drying my tooth while putting the crown on.

3. My brother visited an had a good time and did not disrupt nor was he disrupted by Petey.

4. We spent part of Saturday exploring the French Quarter, which we had not yet done, and I discovered a bunch of shops I want to go back to, namely a book shop and Tower Records when it is open (which it is not at 11 AM on Saturday).

5. I am on my fifth week of doing yoga (at home, with a book, and a mat) and started doing the positions that strengthen your abdominal muscles and boy am I not good at those.

6. We went to one of those cemetaries that New Orleans is so famous for and so many people want to look at. I did not find them particularly interesting, but there is a monument on top of one that is an elk. Yes, the elk with the horns. And then across the street is a Mason cemetary. Interesting...

How did you get started on the yoga? I bought Pilates DVDs and they're too hard. Plus, half the time I'm supposed to be face down, during which I can't watch her to follow along. Seems counterproductive.

Yay for touring your new home! I expect you to be experts by the time we get down there. :p

Light on Yoga
John bought me Light on Yoga: The Bible of Modern Yoga from my wish list. This book has great pictures and descriptions of each pose. I read it over before I do each one, and it has a guide to how to begin at the back, with a list of poses to do each week as you work your way through. You can look through it at any time during the pose, like if you think you've got your arms going the wrong way. It's easier to pause and look in the book than to pause a DVD and go back. I really recommend this book if you want to start yoga.

(I totally need a yoga icon.)

New Orleans
I hope we're experts by then, cause I think we'll have been here four or five years before you visit! :-P But, really, while driving my brother around, I realized we knew/know very little about the city. I mean, we drove through City Park for the first time, and past the big cemetaries!
